The Judge (2017)
First screened in September 2017
Director: Erika Cohn. Documentary about the Honorable Kholoud Al-Faqih, a Palestinian judge who became the first woman ever to preside in a Shari'a court of law. Twitter Capsule:
Rousing tribute to the difficult, groundbreaking labor of a female Shari'a judge. Textured gloss on Shari'a law, too.
Documentaries shouldn't be valued solely for the lives or stories they narrate, but that's hard to avoid with such a rousing, little-understood subject.
